Catch up with full highlights from the Tour de France: bit.ly/2QDT6kL
Colombian Dani Martinez took his first career Tour de France stage victory as he won atop the Puy Mary.
The EF Education First rider beat Bora-Hansgrohe’s Lennard Kamna to the line as the two exhausted men reached the summit finish together at the end of the mountainous 191.5km stage from Chatel-Guyon.
Kamna’s team-mate Max Schachmann had launched a long-range attack on the penultimate climb, but was caught 1.6km from the finish as Martinez and Kamna battled it out on gradients approaching 20 per cent near the summit.
Several minutes behind them, the GC contenders began to fight on the lower slopes of the Puy Mary, with Tadej Pogacar trying to make up for his time deficit from the crosswinds in stage 7. Once again he was able to create separation to all of the other GC contenders except for Primoz Roglic and the two Slovenians began to work together on the steep climb to extend their gap to Landa, Porte, Bernal and Lopez. Egan Bernal looked to be in the most difficulty of that group, eventually losing over 30 seconds to Pogacar and Roglic, along with the second position on GC and the young rider's white jersey.

Brailsford has properly screwed up this year. Team Sky was Brit heavy and a great unit for that. It's about the team dynamics as much as the GC contender. Ineos (Sky) will win more GTs probably, but not with Banal (intentional) as the team leader

I actually think Egan is probably fine. I think the biggest difference is The team as a whole. I mean by no means am I entirely clued up on the teams strengths but Jumbo-Visma just look better in the stages I've seen. Also have 0 idea why Ineos is riding on the front during the second to last climb. Trying to relive the Sky days (and I guess the first year of Ineos) of literally trying to ride everyone off their wheel which just seems like a terrible idea on a stage where realistically the tour isn't going to be won but could 100% be lost and your not even in yellow... Let Jumbo do the work it is basically their job at the moment...

If Kamna goes at 75 meters, he does not give Martinez the time to respond and Kamna wins the stage. Richie Porte is looking good - would love to see him podium. Pogacar looks great but he is young and this is his first tour - plus he is expending a lot of energy to recoup his lost time. Does he get through the tough third week without having one of those BAD days ??

Big difference between last year and this one. Last year, one Colombian and two Frenchmen were competiting honestly with normal speed, and common watt measure. This year Tdf, two mutants from Slovenia are beating time records in famous climb (col de peyresourde ), and yes, they are really on a "different level" when speaking about Watts.

He was honestly so good already at Algarve last year and I'm glad he gained recognition at the highest level in the Vuelta. The guy is a monster but I think he was on the verge of breaking yesterday, if there were a few more hundred meters/if Roglic had paced a bit harder he would have dropped and may have completely exploded and finished behind riders like Porte. Young riders sometimes overestimate their strength and more experienced riders like Porte can manage a more steady pace, Porte was catching on them at the very end before the last Roglic acceleration.

Just an interesting point on this - in the stage classification of the GC favourites (starting with Roglic), four of the top top seven were either current Ineos or former Sky riders (Porte, Landa, Bernal, Uran). The amount of talent that's come through there is mind-blowing. Then Yates was next, a future Ineos rider, and Carapaz was about four places back. 🤯🤯🤯

It could be Bernal is bluffing, I mean, why is he looking back on the climb, giving signs of being on limit.... you don't do that even if you are, or especially if you are.... I expect more from him. Also LAnda, Porte and Lopez are going quite well. It is going to be in interesting final week for sure. Who is going to win the tour? Although Primož is looking super strong and focused I expect a suprise attack from Ineos, and based on TJV and their management in recent years, wellll..... nothing good is going to come out of it, except if Primož takes the initiative and dictates his teammates what to do. He learns from his mistakes more than the management of the team do ;) Go Slovenia.... This is incredible... Even 3 years ago we could only dream about smth like this, and now..... New era, new hope :) Slovenians 1-2 mid way on the TdF.AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Sven Kernaflen - - Costeux
Sven Kernaflen - - Costeux 2 måneder siden
@Gunther3 It's not because they are both Slovenians that they have anything in common. They are from completely different backgrounds and completely different teams. Even if both of them dope (which I honestly don't believe), it would be a pure coincidence that they come from the same country. Now, for your suspiscions: if they were head and shoulders above the rest, that could be suspiscious but Bernal is getting dropped/doing even with riders like Landa, Quintana, Bardet, Martin, Lopez or Porte and all of these guys who were not serious GC contenders these last years are not that far behind from the 2 Slovenians. Honestly, it's more that Bernal is underperforming, and that he was probably a bit overhyped from last year's victory where the field was actually pretty bad in retrospect (Thomas was already declining and riders like Kruijswijk, Buchmann and Alaphilippe are really good riders, but would not have performed so well in a "normal" tour). Pinot was putting some serious time into Bernal last year before he had his injury too, and a 100% Pinot (which happens once in a blue moon during 2 days before there is a problem) could very well follow these two Slovenians. It's always the same with cycling: people talk about doping when a rider is dominant and wins, but if they don't put some serious time into the competition then there is nothing especially suspiscious; someone has to win and be better in any sport. It's too easy to say that someone dopes if you don't like him/if your favourite is getting dropped. I'm not saying this could not be true, but I don't see why you'd call out the winner and not 35 years old Porte who hasn't done anything in years and is almost at their level. Also there is always this tendency with people who watch cycling once a year to be blown up by predictable results. Any serious non-biased analyst expected Roglic to dominate Bernal and quite a lot of them expect Pogacar to be ahead of Bernal, and Bernal to possibly not make it to the podium.

@Lambert Lambert Facial expressions have nothing to do with actual pain/effort. A much better indicator is the style of pedalling. A rider like Nairo is the perfect example, he'll always have a completely even face even in absolute pain, while a rider like Alaphilippe will always be grimacing even in a really good day. I can tell you that Roglic was indeed fine last climb and super dominant, but Pogacar was on the verge of blowing up in the last meters, his pedalling was a lot less smooth and he was moving his elbows more and more (even if he always does it a bit). I'm not saying one of them or both aren't on something (we know for sure Roglic is on ketones which should probably be banned, but well, it's allowed). But you can't throw suspicion based on climbing times, facial expressions or tactical style (because let's face it, it's always the cold Roglic kind of rider who gets accused of doping, never the cool guys like Alaphilippe and being agressive and friendly has nothing to do with power data). Roglic has a pretty logical curve so I'm not suspicious at all if I have to give my opinion (even if I may be completely wrong). One guy has to be the strongest, that does not necessarily mean he's doping. The guy had insane power but was unable to ride and he slowly learned, became a top 20 climber in 2017, had a wonderful TdF in 2018 and became a serious GC contender, struggled mentally and physically in the third week of the 2019 Giro (young team, the pressure of being the favorite and a crash which is often the consequence of pressure and inexperienced team), came back strong and confident for the 2019 Vuelta with a stronger team and carried his confidence since then. By many aspects, you could compare him with Froome: a late bloomer because the guy has insane raw power but had horrendous technique and needed to join a strong team to really transition from a good athlete to a good rider. As for Pogacar, it's harder to guess because he was always looking like an insane talent from the first time I saw him in Algarve in early 2019, but that could be because he doped from a very young age. Still wouldn't believe it, but I guess you could have a slightly bigger doubt because he was always part of the cycling world and probably met some people with a dubious past. I'm fairly certain the father of Jan Polanc was one of his early coaches, and Jan Polanc was in Lampre when there might still have been a culture of doping in Lampre.

@Sven Kernaflen - - Costeux The two Slovenians fellows are actually the only two able to produce these watts while staying comfortable in their breath and movement. Look at Bernal face, or Bardet, they are like the retired australian Cadel Evans. Evans had the reputation of being clean, and all he could do was struggling to follow the strong doped guys.

@Lambert Lambert Peyresourde was with a strong tailwind, first week of the Tour and relatively slow pace for 2/3 of the stage by the peloton, that explains the climbing speed. And the W/kg and VAM of yesterday is because it is a super short very steep climb. Also keep in mind that there were no races at all this year, there is basically no built-up tiredness. I'd honestly find it suspiscious if Roglic Pogacar were doing these times and watts alone, but riders like Porte Landa and even Martin are doing their best climbing performances in years too (if not at all). That would be pretty unlikely that EVERYONE started doping the same year or found something miraculous. I'd say this is most likely the effect of no race at all this year and shorter stages (only one above 200kms this year while there used to be a lot more). When someone starts doping you usually have a few years where he/his team absolutely smash everyone and do things like those legendary Gewiss-Ballan races (when they were the only ones to use EPO).

Is it really naive to think Ineos/Sky has not made the sport suffer? We need parody my friend...watching the same thing over and over kills the excitement. I am not naive enough to think these guys are clean as whistles, that is not my point, and I don’t think we will ever be able to confidently say the sport is clean...from the top teams to U23 there is something available to these guys that the rest of us can only speculate about.

I'd say this is most likely the effect of no race at all this year and shorter stages (only one above 200kms this year while there used to be a lot more). When someone starts doping you usually have a few years where he/his team absolutely smash everyone and do things like those legendary Gewiss-Ballan races (when they were the only ones to use EPO).

perhaps a new test has been devised for whatever cornucopia they are on these days. Some of the performances have been amongst the most incredible I've seen in 35 years of watching le tour.

Finally, some real racing after half a decade of boring sky trains.
